Mercanta’s own Jamie Marler graduated from Bath University with a degree in Chemistry, admittedly by the skin of his teeth. After completing some courses at the LSC including Advanced Cupping and Coffee VRQ, we decided to give him a chance.
Since joining in 2013, he has worked in all areas of the business. He’s a darn good cupper and account manager, he knows our systems like the back of his hand and orchestrates complex shipping and logistics as if it were child’s play.
After leading the way as our head of UK and European sales for a number of years, and setting up our Middle East office, Jamie has taken on a new challenge, by starting his own business. While he’s busy getting everything set up, he’s working with us part-time, managing our Middle East Operation and is responsible for sourcing from Honduras and assists with Colombia and Brazil.
